Congratulation, Weekend Flyer. Great video, and seeing you guys laughing excitedly and happy  in the video is a plus. First guy to cross the 40 second mark.

A few hours remaining. Get your videos in. Love to see all your flights.

Gentlemen,

This Contest is over now.

A big THANK YOU to:

1. All the participants
2. Free Flight for his inputs very much appreciated by many participants
3. Glidiator for adding Gifts

I have 10 days to start another one design build and a 10/20 second contest.

Believe me, IT WILL BE DIFFERENT!

Goodbye and welcome back to a new contest in the new year.

Regards

Dear All,

It has been a delightful contest.

Thank you Mr. Iyer for initiating, sponsoring, building the kits, mailing it all out in wonderful packages so they arrive safely, and very vital giving the benefit of your experience to all so that they can truly enjoy.

Bravo !

It was great to meet and engage with all of you.

But the quest for a one minute flight on a HLG or CLG should not be over. Check the other thread soon as I have suggestions. When you guys start hitting the one minute flights consistently on a Lunchbox then do share your experiences with your friends to as they say in the US "Make Free Flight Great Again" LOL!

Not an Adios!

Best Regards,
Free Flight

Many of you never got around to what I meant by a proper test glide.

That the nose has to point down to the ground about 20-30 ft away.
It has to be launched downwards towards the target.
The speed has to be slow enough to avoid climbing and fast enough to avoid diving.

So here’s a parting shot.

A Goodbye launch...

Hi everyone,

Nine people paid 250 each as entry fee, total Rs 2250.

Prize money disbursements:

1. Rs 1000. Hitesh Kher donated 500 towards next contest, and deposited 500 with me for future kits

2. Rs 750. Credited to SI74’s account. He has offered it as a contribution to the next contest

3. Rs 500. Credited to Weekendflyer’s (wife’s) account

I feel sad that 5 entants could not post a single video. I guess they had other compulsions.
But their contributions didn’t go waste - they built up the prize kitty!

Regards

Firstly. kudos to KK Iyer sir for not only organizing and sponsoring this contest, but for providing continuous encouragement, and much  gyaan on the finer points' Kudos to all the prize sponsors too

Secondly, I sincerely regret not participating myself. A family member is quite ill, and I have to spend time with him and also am temporarily running his business attending his office daily

Many congratulations to all the winners - in my book whoever completed and flew the model is a winner many times over!

Iiyer Sir, why dont you host another competition like this, but maybe after may 2021(after jee and the lot finish), like maybe just for the fun of it, maybe like a paper plane category, just suggesting.
You are a hero btw.
